May be the hard drive is not detecting properly on the computer.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt help, try checking your hard drive on a different computer or using some 3rd party HDD checker.

SOURCE: acer aspire not booting up

Dear f1at3r1c

Righteo then, you should be starting by resetting your BIOS, and you can do this by removing the outer casing o the PC tower. Once yoiu have done this you then need to find the jumper that clears the CMOS/ BIOS. Now if you are somewhat unsure of what a jumper switch is, it just consists of a smallplatic cap which covers two metal conductive pins on the motherboard. There is usually a pin which is not covered.

Now once you have found the CMOS/ BIOS jumper setting, you will need to first remove the motherboard battery. The battery is nothing more than a glorified watch battery of the CR2032 type, and it will be silver in colour and obviously round in shape (typical cell battery).

Once you have removed the battery, you will need to then clear the CMOS/ BIOS and this is done by moving that jumper switch into the clear position. The pin that is exposed will need to be covered withthe plastic jumper, and the pin on the opposite side will need to be exposed. Leave the jumper in the clear position for about 10-20 seconds or so, and then replace it back to the original position. (doing this discharges all of the electricity in the BIOS/ CMOS chip). Once you have done this, you put the battery back in place and then start the machine, then you are good to go. Start the machine and enter the BIOS as you planned to do. You might want to consider ormatting your hard disk and re-installing windows or whatever operating system you have, and this is eeasy enough, just change the boot sequence to boot from your CD/ DVD drive first, the your hard drive second. Once its loaded up, re-enter the BIOS and reset it back to HDD first.

Now f this has not worked, then you have an oooopsie (this is my saying of oh ***T, oops, something has malfunctioned. Its more than likely to be hardware driven, so take out your hard drive first and try to boot, if it lets you bios, then you found your fault. Try this with all devices until you either find the fault, or you have narrowed this to your processor/ motherboard.


Now im sure this will solve your problem, but there is one thng you should need to know about, and it is how to identify the correct jumper. This will have either any of the following markings written on the motherboard very close to the where the jumper is. You may need glasses/ magnifyer lens in order to read the lettering, but it should say one of the following things.

CLRCMOS
CLCMOS
CLRBIOS
CMOSRST
RESET
CMOSRT
BIOSRST
CMOSCLR
CLEAR
could also be under J1, JUMPER1

Now im sure that this is the fixya for you, but if this still does not work, then please get hold of me, and i will provide you with more info.

I wish you all the best, and hope you manage to solve this issue sortly

kind regards

yours sincerely

Oz

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode? You can do this by pressing/tapping the 'F8' key after the bios screen (Acer Screen) comes up. If it does you boot correctly then, you can try to restore the system to an earlier date using System Restore. That's located in the start menu/windows orb at All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore

Does it boot into safe mode (Tap F8 key on booting)

If so then a driver is responsible. Simply boot into safe mode and type msconfig into start / run.

Tick everything except antivirus / spyware program.Reboot and tick the box that pops up.

if your computer doesn't get past the acer bios screen, the computer can't turn on / start up properly. Got warranty? get it repaired or take it to a professional for repairs.
